Amen
[resolved] Public Prayer Posters (11 posts)

    A client I am working for wants a public prayer wall and this seemed like a solution. The only problem is that thus far I have only been able to post prayers as a logged-in user; the site will not have a base of users with accounts. Is there a way to set it so that users do not have to be logged-in to post a prayer? Updating the prayer can still be done by and admin. I figured out only how to have certain users be able to manage the prayers.

    Thanks for your help.

    Shouldn't be too difficult to add this as an option. i'll try to make some edits soon to allow public posting.

    You mentioned in the other thread that the shortcodes weren't working ... in template files? Can you start another thread on that and give more detail? Thanks!

    Oh, the shortcodes are working on the template but not when I use them in the WYSIWYG editor. I believe it is the p-tag editor issue that affects all shortcodes since the editor will add p-tags automatically around certain elements.

    i don't think that should affect this shortcode. Can you provide any additional details, or a link to where the list ought to be?

    Sorry for the delayed response, been a bit busy in the office.

    As for the shortcode, I sadly cannot give you a link but here is a screenshot of what it looks like on the front-end: http://cl.ly/image/2m1W2F1n3m28

    The top part is being generated by do_shortcode(); in the template. I initially tried having just one or the other shortcodes on the page but they do not work separately nor together. We do have TinyMCE Advanced running and with the force visible tags in the editor due to our editor always stripping out necessary tags. Apparently this feature can break some items as it tweaks WPautop (which might be the culprit in the frist place).

    Any luck with the public prayers?

    Thanks again!

    i think i have the public prayer sorted out. Won't be able to post an update until tomorrow. With this, i added the option to require prayer request approval from either public prayers, or from all posters.

    Posted 0.3.1: Give it a good hard test drive. Note that public posters can manage their previously posted requests, provided they have not cleared their cookies.

    Looks great!

    I am not seeing how visitors can manage their prayers. When I am anonymous it allows me to pray and post a new prayer, but that is it. Do you mean that to manage them users still have to have a login? If so, that is fine though it kind of defeats the purpose of the update functionality.

    Also, it may be useful from a usability and customizability standpoint to add a field that overrides the name for "Anonymous Visitor" so either the admin can just have "Visitor" or "Member" or whatever they want/need (this would be on the back-end in the admin) and posters could maybe post their name (this would be on the front-end).

    Thanks again!

    i've notice on a fresh install, public users are allowed to manage. On my site, however, using a caching plugin, users are served a cached page and do not see their submitted request. Try disabling any cache plugin and see if that changes things.

    i'll have to consider some workaround for this. i had thought about allowing admin to change those displays. Not done yet, but good idea!
